Objectives • Understanding the organization of the Online Reporting System (ORS) • Learning to navigate the system and access data • Using Test Management Center features and updates for 2012 – 2013 • Understanding the role of rosters in reporting and Learning Point Navigator • Accessing help and support
System Design My students seem to be struggling in math Who? Is it a particular class or group? What? Is it a specific part of math or more generalized? When? Has this student or group had trouble with this before?
User Roles • All ORS users must be assigned a user role in TIDE. • Each user has “Look Down” access when viewing score results. • Teacher-level users must be associated with their students via Rosters. This can be done in one of two ways: • Uploading rosters in TIDE • Using the Manage Rosters feature in the ORS
View Current Students First, select the test, administration, and the student reports you want.
Options for Viewing Students • “Scores for students who were mine during the selected administration” • Returns scores for the students you had during an administration (default) • Example: “What were last year’s Grade 4 Reading scores of the students I had last year?” • “Scores for my current students” • Returns scores for the students who are currently in your rosters • Example: “What were last year’s Grade 4 Reading scores for the students I am now teaching in Grade 5?” Note: For the current year, these two options return the same reports
Options for Viewing Students • Example • User creates a roster this year with his or her new students • The user did not teach these students last year • The user wants to see how these students performed on MCA last year • The user should select “Scores for my Current Students”
Homepage: Global Tools Print or export page for records Search for data on a specific student Click “Score Reports” to return to this Homepage at any time Easy access to the User Guide
Managing Rosters Use “Manage Rosters” to create new rosters for your teachers for the 2012-2013 school year
Exploring the Data Select a particular grade and subject in either table to view more data
Exploring the Data: Using the Navigation Tool Click the Navigation Tool to Explore the Data
Navigating the “Who” Dimension The user can move back and forth between less detailed levels of aggregation and more detailed levels of aggregation, all the way down to the student level.
Navigating the “What” Dimension The user can navigate down from the subject level to view finer-grain detail on strand and benchmark performance.
Navigating the “What” Dimension Links to Learning Point Navigator
Navigating the “When” Dimension Note: For 2012-2013, only GRAD has a Trend report
Navigating the “When” Dimension Check the box to show information for the student
Test Management Center Use the dropdown to choose the Test Management Center report you would like to use.
Using Plan And Manage Testing Common examples of Plan and Manage Testing cases • Which students have not yet tested? • Which students have started but not yet completed their test? • Which students need to finish tests that are going to expire soon? • Which students have paused tests? • Did every student in a test session complete their test?
Test Management Center: Test Completion Rates Select reports by schools or district to see the number of tests started/completed
Test Management Center: Test Completion Rates Exported report shows the number of students who have started and completed each test
Learning Point Navigator (LPN) • Formative assessment information • School-level users can create assignments for rosters or individual students • Report on student performance for each assignment • See how students answer questions to investigate gaps in knowledge or misunderstandings • LPN is accessed from the portal • LPN requires that the user have students assigned to them (TIDE or Manage Rosters) • Benchmark reports link directly to relevant content in LPN (OLPA and Mathematics MCA Grades 3-8) • School-level users can make assignments based on their class’ areas of relative weakness • Example: “Which students are struggling with estimating arithmetic solutions?”
